Port Clements water safe to drink

  • Feb. 26, 2015 8:00 a.m.

The boil-water advisory for Port Clements has been lifted, following two rounds of testing that both came back clean.Northern Health placed the Village of Port Clements on a boil water notice earlier this week while the village waited for a replacement of a broken down chlorine distribution pump. Since the breakdown village crews have been manually injecting chlorine in the water system. Northern Health has cleared this process as safe until the automated system is again operational. Two clear samples have to be approved before boil-water advisories can be lifted.
